Paroles Across the River

Le - Par .

I've been watching you now for a long long time
Across the river you've been waiting for the tide
Everything that you ever did is in your eyes
I can see you coming out in the shadow of the moonlight
Like you I've struggled with the question of right life
Like you I've been in the belly of the night

Hold me close it's dark and cold outside
It's raining days and nights into our lives
Into our Lives

The captain says that it doesn't look so good from here
Hope and mercy are stranded on the pier
Love is the prisoner of the dark and the weird
Only the stars in heart will guide you clear
Like you I've struggled with the question of right life
Like you I've been in the belly of the night

Hold me close it's dark and cold outside
It's raining days and nights into our lives
I can make it on my own
But it's good to have you by my side
Hold me close it's dark and cold outside
Only the stars in your heart (Yelele mama)
Hold me close it's dark and cold outside
It's raining days and nights into our lives
